Auguste Perret

Auguste Perret (*1874 Ixelles/Belgium, †1954 Paris) is a pioneer of classical / early modern architecture,
on the verge between neoclassicism, Art Deco, Nouveau, Streamline and other 20th century styles.

He was a world leader and specialist in reinforced concrete construction and has proven as only one of
the few architects in history that visible concrete can be of apt aesthetical quality and good durability.

Le Havre

Perret most notably/prominently planned the post-WW2 rebuilding of the French city of Le Havre (starting in 1945 and finished 10 years after his death in 1964, French article about it).

It's not my favourite project of him because of the largely modernist and somewhat monotonous structures, except that I adore his sacral landmark Saint-Joseph. But of course it's an epitome of his 'later' work and a world-renowned example of a one-plan city rebuilding project. So others might show more pictures of this area.

St. Joseph, Le Havre ("Église Saint-Joseph du Havre", 1951-56):

TOUR PERRET | Amiens | 104m | 1949-1952

And here it bangs, my favourite secular tower of Perret:

The 104m residential Tour Perret of Amiens (completed 1952) would be the perfect rolemodel for new classical / early modern style
French skyscrapers in e.g. Paris, Lyon, Marseilles and other cities! It was the first real highrise tower of France and is an icon. I just love it.

Inspiration can and should be also taken from Gothic architecture, it's just unmatched in its sophistication...

That illumination is just perfect!

Now you just forced me to go and see this, hopefully I can do it soon:



Woof! 1922, nonetheless.

This is one of those architects where you can instantly tell a building is by him.
